I agree with you. What a blessing. I needed this today.

Also, as we rejoice, we can be a testimony to those in the world.

Thank you for sharing.

Thanks Missy for the excellent reminder. I have learned that I can choose to walk in joy, regardless of my circumstances. His joy really does strengthen us from the inside out.

I'm trying to remember the last time I REJOICED! It is altogether too easy to be somber and grim.
In my garden, I guess I delight and smile the most.

Thank you, Missy, for taking the time to post this. The Lord showed me this a couple years ago, also. It is so very true! There is nothing like being where the Lord wants us, close to Him. It is amazing how even knowing this I sometimes get caught up in the cares of this world to the point that I move myself further away from Him. Thank you for the reminder!

Thank you, Missy, for taking the time to post this. Even though we try to be positive and upbeat, once in a while we just aren't. Maybe this is the reason. Be well. -- Lou

The Joy Of The Lord Is Your Strength


NEHEMIAH 8:10 NLT ...Don't be dejected and sad, for the joy of the LORD is your strength!

I do not claim it is the only meaning, but one thing the Lord showed me from this verse is that our level of joy is like a thermometer revealing our spiritual strength. If our joy is low -- our spiritual strength is low. That is because the Lord is our strength, and in His presence there is fullness of joy.

PSALM 16:11 NKJ You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

So, if our joy is low, it means we have not been spending time in God's presence, receiving His strength and help. It means we have got our focus off God and onto something else.

(Although God is always with us, as we worship Him and praise Him and thank Him, God manifests His presence.)

Being gloomy is not a sign of being spiritual. God did not intend for His people to be downcast. Let the world be sad, we have something to rejoice about! Jesus! Heaven!

If you look at your circumstances you may not feel like rejoicing. But if you look at Jesus as He truly is -- you will not be able to keep from rejoicing in Him. Jesus is wonderful!

PHILIPPIANS 4:4 NLT Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again -- rejoice!

SAY THIS: I will rejoice in the Lord!
